Providence Bruins hold off Monarchs

The Manchester Monarchs are hoping their third annual Pink In The Rink game against the Providence Bruins on Tuesday at the Verizon Wireless Arena turns out better than their road game Sunday at the Dunkin' Donuts Center.

Torey Krug's second period goal stood tall as the Providence Bruins handed the Monarchs a 3-2 American Hockey League setback on Sunday.

Manchester (21-22-2-2), in fourth place in the Atlantic Division with 46 points, failed to make ground against second-place Providence (26-16-0-3, 55 points).

The Monarchs, who are on a five-game losing streak, trailed 2-0 in the first period on goals from Carter Camper and Craig Cunningham.

The Monarchs cut into Providence's lead with a goal by left wing Tanner Pearson at 10:15 of the second period to make it 2-1.

Tyler Toffoli sent a pass to Pearson in the slot and Pearson finished the play by wristing a shot midway up on the stick side of Bruins goaltender Niklas Svedberg for his 11th goal of the season.

Left wing David Meckler scored a goal just 37 seconds into the third period to bring the Monarchs within 3-2.

Manchester went 0-for-1 on the power play. Providence went 1-for-6 with the man advantage.
